@Rocco_TheStreet Sounds like low end = dead end.— John Brenner (@BrnrJohn) November 13, 2013To that end, this is nothing short of devastating news for Google and HP: Tech Website The Verge first reported, midday Wednesday, that Best Buy (BBY) store managers received "urgent instructions" to stop selling the $279 laptop -- Chromebook 11 -- effective immediately. An HP spokesperson told The Verge that only "a small number of user reports' led to the decision to cease Chromebook 11 sales for the time being. Chromebook 11 owners should not use the charger supplied with the device. Again, hardly a welcome development for a company (Google) attempting to corner a significant chunk of the computer market and another (HP) making desperate attempts at something resembling relevancy.
